Major pharmacy bodies have issued this joint statement following a recent MHRA announcement that it had made progress in decriminalising dispensing errors

The PDA, Pharmacy Voice, IPF and the RPS remain committed to removing the sanction of a criminal prosecution for a human error in dispensing that is not due to recklessness, criminal negligence or wilful neglect. We are therefore working with the DH and the MHRA to bring forward a range of measures that will improve the current situation as rapidly as possible, providing protection to pharmacists, maintaining public confidence and safety, and enabling professional development.
